2000AD Prog 226: In the Mean Arena, the name of the game is… get Tallon!

Steve Dillon is back on the cover, and so is Tallon, flanked by a few of the Slayers we met before the Jensen Clan confrontation.

Judge Dredd Annual 1982

Mike McMahon provides the cover for the second Judge Dredd Annual which has a very green theme going on (border, gloves and boots, rooftop gardens and jetpacking perp's visor). The contents page continues with the McMahon artwork as Dredd and a cohort of judges (what is the collective noun for judges, anyway?) stand outside the … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1982

2000AD Prog 200 Let the reading galaxy celebrate! “I, Tharg, bring you future-worlds!”

Prog 2000 sees a Robin Smith Tharg holding the completed Future-worlds poster taking the cover. The cover blurb says it's a giant poster, but the centre-spread presented partwork posters we've had previously have been bigger (by two pages). This is Prog 200 (may as well be called This is 2000AD, as it serves as an … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 200 Let the reading galaxy celebrate! “I, Tharg, bring you future-worlds!”

2000AD Prog 198: “By the right… SWARM!” Revenge of the Thrill-Suckers!

2000AD Prog 198 cover, art by 'Q Twerk' Ian Gibson brings in a wrap-around cover depicting a swarm of Thrill-Suckers (though signs it Q. Twerk - I know Ezquerra uses other names when he's not happy with the work he did, but I'm not sure about Gibson). It's not often you'll get a skinhead eating … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 198: “By the right… SWARM!” Revenge of the Thrill-Suckers!

2000AD Prog 182: “These blocks are under arrest!”

One of Brian Bolland's most famous Judge Dredd covers, and that's no mean feat! the judge stands between two warring blocks, using nothing other than harsh words to quell the disturbance. After the last Strontium Dog story came to a slightly disatisfying conclusion, Alan Grant and Ezquerra are back with a bang on an as-yet-untitled … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 182: “These blocks are under arrest!”

2000AD and Tornado Prog 155: Join the V.C.s… Vape a space-invader today!

This prog we have a Cam Kennedy V.C.s cover, showing the star-troopers and V.C.s in hand-to-hand combat while spacewalking. Tharg's Nerve Centre starts off with another plug for the Judge Child Quest (Judge Dredd won't be appearing in this prog though) and a trail for a special competition next prog. Reader's contributions include a call … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 155: Join the V.C.s… Vape a space-invader today!

2000AD and Tornado Prog 143: The Stainless Steel Rat continues his galactic hunt for the ultimate war-machine!

Slippery Jim takes to the cover (along with that Mk 10 war droid disguised as an M 3 robot). King Carlos does the honours. In the Tharg's Nerve Centre an Earthlet's Latin teacher criticises Deadlock's grasp of the dead language... Judge Dredd: The Black Plague! Part IV by John Howard and Ron Smith begins with … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 143: The Stainless Steel Rat continues his galactic hunt for the ultimate war-machine!
